Advantages of Saltillo & Telavera Tile:
- Saltillo and Talavera Designs Will Enhance The Beauty Of Your Location
- Saltillo Tiles Are Environmentally Friendly
- All-Natural Product – Saltillo is made from clay found in the Northern Mexico area of Saltillo, is formed into tiles, dried in the sun and then fired in kilns. The positioning of the tile in the kiln determines the range in color from yellow to red with many tiles having a mixture of those colors.
- Saltillo Tiles Are Hand Made – Because the tiles are left to dry outside, you may see bug prints, the footprint of a dog or child which makes for a wonderful conversation piece in your living room.
- Saltillo Tiles Feel Good on Feet – Since these tiles are made of clay, they are environmentally friendly and feel soft on your feet. Saltillo is warmer on bare feet in winter than ceramic tiles, and are cool and comfortable in the summer.
- Saltillo Tiles Wear Naturally – Softer than ceramic tile, they do need to be sealed before they are installed. After installation, they can be re-sealed if you like. They are just as beautiful if they are allowed to wear naturally. Saltillo tiles have been made in Mexico and the Southwest for hundreds of years and many public places in those areas have wonderful Saltillo which has been allowed to age naturally.
- Saltillo Tiles Are Easy to Care For
- Saltillo Tile Hides Dirt – The warm brown color of Saltillo tends to hide the dirt. Even if a Saltillo floor is dirty, it can be hard to tell. That is a strong advantage for families with young children!
- Care & Maintenance – Just Vacuum Sweep & Mop: In most cases a quick vacuuming or sweeping is all that a Saltillo tile floor needs to make it look fantastic. When dirty or sticky, mop with water, diluted vinegar (1 part vinegar to 10 parts water), or a floor cleaner made for clay tiles.
- Saltillo Tiles Can Be Re-sealed for Shine – Your Saltillo can be shinier by a reseal every year or two. Re-sealing is optional and you may not even need it except in high traffic areas. Some Saltillo floors last more than 5 to 7 and have not been resealed.
Remember that Saltillo tiles are very unique. If different is important Saltillo is a very valid consideration for all Southwestern, Mediterranean, or French styles. These types of decor can enhance the beauty of these versitile tiles. Customize with Talavera, and these hand made painted tiles follow patterns which have been used for more than a hundred years. Creation of your own art and style instills a sense of history that can identify with your own creative taste.
